Icon Spring 2023: Measuring Distress and Overwhelm

Wednesday, March 22, 2023 10am-1pm CST • Virtual • Register Now

How can technology improve a cancer survivor's journey?

We all know a cancer diagnosis is overwhelming. Our goal in this conversation will be to understand which tools best support survivors—and their caregivers. What tools are helpful, and what areas are too complex for technology? What tools are missing?

In this conversation, we will also share ideas on how we might update our online resources, and will be eager to hear your feedback on this plan.

During this Innovation Conversation, we are looking forward to hearing from you: patients, caregivers, physicians, healthcare providers, researchers, and program administrators from around the country about ideas on what works.

Be a part of the future of cancer care and join the conversation!

Why Innovation Conversations?

INNOVATION - At Livestrong, we are about finding solutions and we believe that the best solutions are created when you bring together people with deep knowledge of the problem, give them a space to imagine bigger, and connect them with generous disrupters. At Icon we bring together the survivor experience and some of the most disruptive and energetic minds working in all facets of the cancer space to create powerful solutions.

CONVERSATIONS – To find the right solutions, we have to understand the problem. And to understand the problem, we have to listen to a variety of perspectives and experiences. At Icon you will hear from tech startups building new technology, non-profits filling gaps in local communities in new ways, and impact investors changing the way we fund these solutions. But this isn’t just a panel of speakers talking about what they are doing. These are conversations with you – small breakout sessions centered on listening and idea sharing to solve cancer problems which simply don’t deserve to exist.

Learn from the best and brightest

Keynote Speakers and Breakout Session Facilitators will include technology leaders, brilliant medical minds, impact investors, and survivors and caregivers living with cancer today.

Small Group Breakout Sessions: Share your perspectives and grow your network

We know that when we work together, incredible things can happen. That's why the event will facilitate opportunities to network with other system-disruptors in a small group setting. You'll have the option to share your contact information to keep the conversations going! There are small group sessions at both virtual and in-person Icon Events.
